When you say the present company do you mean your former employer or your future employer?
Yes. But are you saying you don't think that that your present employer is going to give you the vacation pays for bonus or the new one who is taking over?

You cannot be compelled to sign any resignation letter. In fact, are you actually resigning? Aren't you being dismissed because the business is closing down?
In any event tell them you are not going to sign anything until you get everything you are owed.
As well, unless the new employer is giving you all of your years of seniority in the employment contract your former employer owes you termination pay.
This is more complicated then you may have thought!
Your next step really should be to consult with an appointment with her face-to-face before you sign anything at all.
Do you see what I mean?
But let me know if you don't!
